Ace of Cakes Nightmare

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I finally was able to download a pic of a cake I did for a competition. I still had not been able to upload it because of its size but no problem today. Anyways some people were asking about it and I thought I would explain... It was a cake for a competition that Duff from Ace of Cakes was judging. The cake was called a Bakers Nightmare because it was all about our fear of dropping a cake. The bakers were made out of fondant and gumpaste and are supposed to be the people from the Ace of Cakes show. The one in the corner who has already dropped his cake is Duff. This cake had a motor in the base with two speeds that made the cakes spin. Some of the figures had jointed legs because I wanted their legs to swing with the movement. The cakes are foam covered with fondant. The arms that hold all the cakes are hidden within the figures. The angles look really crazy in this picture because after I set it up my brother decided we needed to test it. Well a nut that was tight became loose inside the arm work and the whole thing started to tilt. Well at that point there was nothing more we could do. Time was up and judging was beginning so we had to leave. I was later told that Duff had begun judging and had not gotten to my cake yet when it crashed over. Oh the irony! Why would I choose to make a cake with a theme about cakes falling over???? Anyways here's the pic..

Your cake looks fabulous, I love the detail in your Ace of Cake figures. So heartbreaking that it fell, but you should be proud of how well it looked.

Wow, I am soo impressed with your figures alone!! What a shame it crashed. Seriously, could you do the same with real cakes? With the angles and supports used could it work with real ones? I have no clue, that's why I ask. This is worlds beyond anything I could attempt. So sorry you had a disaster. As I said, your figures looked great!!
